Dassault appears to be on the path of complete world simulation. If you have the money, why not?

Thanks Cabe for the interesting article.  I was not aware that CAD and simulation tools were so extensively used in the molecular modeling environment.  This acquisition should help Dassault quickly expand into new CAD market spaces.

Wow, that's interesting, Cabe.  I'm a Dassault customer now, using their SolidWorks software as my primary CAD tool of choice.   Now with Biovia, being capable of modeling compounds at the molecular level, Chemists,  Biologists and Metallurgists will be spending more time at CAD terminals now. Reminds me of the scene where Scotty recalled the compound formulation for Transparent Aluminum! 

(Which, incidentally, may be realized soon!  See the link):
